Advocated for 2 Legislative Amendments

AFHA has directly advocated for legislative amendments and their successful enactment into the FY22 National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA), including changes to Evan's Law and the Protecting Military Families with Disabilities Act.

6 Reported Surveys

These surveys are brought to Congress and other DoD Senior Officials to back up anecdotal stories we receive and opens doors for families who can’t otherwise advocate publicly for fear of reprisal. Surveys allow us to protect the masses and speak on your behalf.
AFHA has created and reported data from 6 surveys regarding the Tenant Bill of Rights, Mental Health and Wellness, ADA Compliance, Fire and Carbon Monoxide Safety, and MHPI Housing and Physical Health Concerns to Congress. Our TBOR and Mental Health surveys are still active and on-going.
